    I am really torn about this story, have been for years. While I agree that the system failed, what would have come of these kids in all honesty if they were not vilified in the first place. Wasn't that really the point of the way they acted and dressed? Sure, they are in prison, but they are now famous, is that a good trade off, I don't know?! What do you guys think of the assessment that they are happier being famous than being free?

    Wow. I really can't believe you could actually think someone would be happy being famous yet being in prison instead of being free.

    Like msquared alluded to, what you smokin'?

  6. Both the original Paradise lost and the sequel are up on Youtube. I watched the first one yesterday after reading this thread. Interesting movie. I've wanted to see it for years.

    Yes, bumping an old thread....I did a search and came across this.

    Here is part one of the 48 hours special that was done on the case, the next 4 clips which complete the episode can be followed once the first is finished playing.

    Can any of us say without a shadow of a doubt that these are not the guys responsible? No, but regardless of this they deserve a fair trial.....
  8. paradise lost....i saw it years ago on vhs,and the sequel later......any one with even a passing interest in how the justice system works should see them both.....especially now that people like nancy grace are out there convicting people in the media,based on how much junk food they order in remand....

    the thin blue line by errol morris is another great doc about a guy convicted of killing a dallas county cop and sentenced to death,and later exonerated after 11 years in prison
